Are the system requirements less than QT7 @ high def is the big question.

I would absolutely assume so. I think the big question is are they lower ENOUGH? What was the link to the high-def file that wasn't playing so well for us last week?

Don't know but there are some 720 and 1080 formatted trailers at http://www.apple.com/trailers at the top of the left most column.

Ok, it loads and plays QT7 h264 files, just fine. However, the performance is only marginally better than real Quicktime. It IS better, though. :)

Frankly, I fail to see the allure. WMV-HD is much less CPU intensive on ANY platform. I mean, c'mon - twin G5's needed to run 1080 on the Mac platform? That's friggin' ridiculous. There should no need for that much CPU power, seriously.
